Undungeon is a complicated game, it gives the impression of freedom and looting but in actuality, it’s a game full of text, confusing menus, and slow tedious gameplay. You go from area to area (which themselves are small) and do a particular task and then go on to the next, it all sounds simple and it is but it’s the boring combat, tedious fighting, and general slugginess that takes the biscuit. Yes, it has loot but not in the Diablo sense more of the crafting materials sense, you can acquire spheres and runes to attach to yourself to adjust stats and abilities so it does the whole RPG thing. But if the gameplay is tedious and kinda sterile what’s the point in caring about the upgrades and unlocks, sure they look cool when executed but by the time you get to that point you are so over it all that it does little for you. At times it felt like they wanted as many systems in play at one and to be honest that’s how it feels and there is just no cohesion or atmosphere to it. I could go on but you get the point, Undungeon is not a great example of the genre and one that infuriates rather than entertain.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
